This Sunday saw hordes of skaters descend upon Bute Square for a day of pure chaos courtesy of Sabbath Wheels and Heathen Skateboards. Safe to say Black Mass 2 was a massive success so shoutout to everyone who came down and got stuck in and of course thanks to all the Sabbath and Heathen boys for putting it on! Full recap coming soon.

Italy's La Dolce Vita crew have treated us to 9 minutes of Sicilian spot porn as they make their way round the Circumetnea trainline in search of cutty spots hidden in the back streets of Sicilian villages. Bellissimo.

Always love a bit of Kyler Garrison footy and getting to see him wiggle his way round some Mancunian spots in his new Hopps part is the icing on an already very pleasing slice of cake. That ender at the sombrero is insane.

Whole lotta legends in the new Nike SB edit, 'Gassed Up', featuring parts from Nicole Hause, Arin Lester, Hayley Wilson, Sarah Meurle and loads more of skateboarding's most talented ladies. Hayley Wilson absolutely kills it.

Relive the party that was the P-Stone Cup 2023 as some of the biggest names in skateboarding descended on Lower Bobs to honour the life of P-Stone with a day filled with limes, coconuts, transition skating and good times.

Get a behind the scenes look at Place Mag's 'Tao Issue' and accompanying video, 'Is This The Place?', in the new 'Behind The Tao' documentary featuring some lovely B-roll and unused clips of Heitor Da Silva, Ville Wester and the rest of the boys.

Join the Loophole Wheels crew as they weave their way through the streets of Marseille with Jameel Douglas, Andrea Dupre, Ruben Spelta, Victor Campillo and the rest of the fellas hitting a load of the city's lesser-seen spots with impeccably loose style.

Naquan Rollings is back with the second episode of his 'Roadkill' series featuring a seriously heavy squad in New York, including Zach Allen, Tanner Burzinski, Kevin White, Pedro Delfino, Tyson Peterson and many more.

JP Villa offers up a technical masterclass in his new 'Free Agency' part, coming through with a load of extremely rare ledge manoeuvres that you definitely won't be seeing again any time soon.

Stingwater - the niche skate clothing brand founded by Daniel Kim - have teamed up with Seoul's Savour Skate Shop for a powerful new video featuring Gi Yun Lee, Ju Won & Hyung Seung absolutely sending it at a load of crisp South Korean spots.

With the taste of 'Genesis 3' still fresh in everyone's mouths, Ian Ostrowski has rounded up the gang for a roadtrip round some fun-looking parks and spots with a sneaky teaser of some potential Genesis decks at the end. Always hyped for new Dylan Clark footy.

Absolutely textbook hellriding from the Doomsayers crew in their 'Weekend in Fresno' clip with the lads blasting round some of the local, backyard pools in between laps at the skatepark. Heavy revs brah.

Getting serious 917 vibes from Bluecouch NY's latest video with the voicemail intro and the skating definitely holds up with a variety of powerful New York bangers from Noe Horiwaki, Mecca Mshaka-Morris, Caleb Yuan, Zac Negron & Carlos Canter.

That's enough chit-chat though. Head to the shop to buy the latest clothing and skateboard decks from CSC. Or, check out more of the latest news, videos, and product reviews on the CSC Blog. Safe.
